Proverbs 6

Proverbs 6 – As part of the 31 Day Proverbs Challenge, I am doing one chapter per day for 31 days since there are 31 chapters also in the Book of Proverbs. This is Day 6 of 31, therefore I am focusing on Proverbs 6.

Proverbs 6

Today read the whole chapter of Proverbs 6.

Dangerous Promises

This chapter in proverbs starts off talking about a hand shake is like a seal contract. Something that today seems rare. So it tells you if you shake on something, make sure you keep your word on what you shook your hands on. This is topic one on dangerous promises. It tells if we cannot keep our promise, we need to go to the person and tell them. It tells us to not sleep, that means do not put it off, do it now. This is found in Proverbs 6:1-5.

The Folly of Indolence

Chapter 6 also talks about the Folly of Indolence, as found in Proverbs 6:6-11. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, indolence means that you have an inclination to laziness. This section tells us that even the ants work to get their food and so must we work to get our food. I take it as these verses warn us about being lazy.

The Wicked Man

It also goes on talking about a wicked man. The wicked man is a worthless person. It also says he talks bad. He also points his fingers, puts the blame on others. He does not have any accountability. He also has a bad heart, it has bad thoughts, perverse thoughts it says. Because this man is a wicked man, he continually seeks out what he can do to cause discord. The Wicked Man Section is found in Proverbs 6:12-19.

6 Things God Hates

It goes on to tell us there are 6 things that God hates and seven are an abomination, or disgust. You can check out the list or the graphic below. (Proverbs 6:16-19)

  1. A Proud Look
  2. A Lying Tongue
  3. Hands that shed innocent blood (Murder, Killing)
  4. Wicked heart (A heart that devises wicked plans)
  5. Feet that are swift in running to evil (Swift means quickly)
  6. A false witness who speaks lies
  7. One who sows discord among brethren (this can includes Gossip)
Proverbs 6:16-19

Beware of Adultery

This proverb also talks to their son in this case, for him to keep his parents commandments. What his parents had thought him. I am sure his parents raised him up in the way of the Lord. So I am sure this honoring thy father and mother and God’s Law. It tells us reproof is necessary.

It goes beyond keeping the commandments, but bound them up in your heart. Your heart is a safe keeping place. This way if its in your heart, you won’t depart from it. Again, it says keeping this commandments, will help the child stay away from the seductive immoral woman or wicked woman. Just like the Chapter 5.

It says here to not lust after her beauty or allow her to allure you with her looks or way she looks at you. Just like the warning to the son about lusting, today the world is full of lusting. Both men and women lust after the outward appearance.

Adultery Continued

It also goes on to say if you go to a prostitute, harlot, that you are nothing more than bread crumbs. It tells you that this type of woman will prey on you. She will do all she can to try to lure you in and destroy you. Giving into this wicked woman can ruin your health, your family, your marriage, your financial and even more aspects of your life. It can also ruin your testimony and your walk with God. Remember sin separates us from God. God cannot look upon sin.

It also goes on to say, if you go to your neighbors wife and have an affair with her, then you have stolen something. You become a thief. It also says if you commit adultery that you lack understanding. And it also destroys your own soul.

Just think of it this way, when a husband finds out another man had his way with his woman, that man will want revenge. Often it can lead to murder. The Bible talks about the jealousy of the husband. Check out Proverbs 6:34. “For jealousy is a husband’s fury; Therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.”

4 thoughts on “Proverbs 6

  1. Why am I angst over things that do not go as I think should go? Why are others this way too?
    Could it be because we want control over things to feel safe and secure?

    So we seem to do things that are not pleasing to God, who is the one that is in control, yet has given free choice to choose. I see that as Love, giving us free choice do you? I mean to tell another to do or else seems as not true Love to me, how about you
    Therefore I will do as God wants me to do, yet not me, actually God doing the living through me
    Thanks

    1. Even the Apostle Paul said, he does things he ought not to do and there are things he knew he should do and didn’t, look at Paul, he wrote most of the New Testament, if he struggled, you know we will too.
